Jersey City Writers is a community of dedicated scribes who seek to develop and explore their craft by interacting with other writers. We inspire and support each other to be the best writers we can be in a fun and open social setting.

JCW meets on three days -- Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Each meeting day follows the same schedule. Twice a month we host a Writer’s Workshop and twice a month we host a night of Writer's Prompts. (Please see schedule for details and guidelines).

All genres are welcome. We encourage you to finish your play, your novel or your short story. Stop by and bond with other writers who understand the complicated, yet satisfying process of creating something from nothing.

If you are a local writer seeking inspiration, support and accountability…come join us!
